Adaptable storage solution for compound management, biobanking and forensic applications
Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening, Washington, D.C., (February 8, 2015) – Hamilton Storage Technologies, an affiliate entity of Hamilton Company, a leading provider in the design and manufacture of liquid handling, process measurement, robotics and storage solutions, today introduced the Hamilton Verso™, a truly modular automated storage platform which is easily configured to meet the needs of the most demanding sample management applications.
The Hamilton Verso system can be scaled to fit sample capacities ranging from 100,000 to over 5 million tubes at temperatures from ambient to -20°C. Verso is capable of storing and processing up to 1,500 tubes and plates per hour, and allows loading and unloading of up to 70 sample racks at a time. To complete a fully automated workflow, Verso can integrate with Hamilton automated liquid handling workstations, such as the Microlab® STAR or the VANTAGE Liquid Handling System™.
With end-users in mind, the intuitive system allows users to easily perform most jobs in three clicks or less. Features include one-touch loading, and a job queue manager which allows users to prioritize jobs and set jobs to process overnight. Every sample is tracked at all times to maintain a complete audit trail, including their temperature logs, who accessed the sample and what function was completed.
“Compound screening applications are fast paced and storage systems need to be dependable and flexible to meet these needs,” said Matt Hutnak, Platform Lead, Hamilton Storage Technologies. “The Hamilton Verso provides a faster, more reliable platform which adapts to meet the user’s needs and applications without compromising their process. Verso combines storage modules which accommodate any labware or container type with functional modules that handle a wide range of labware and containers without any modification.”
Hamilton Storage Technologies will be exhibiting the Verso during the Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening, SLAS (Hamilton Company booth # 501), in Washington, D.C., February 7-11, 2015.
